About WestJet's Flights To Calgary And Vancouver..

Tue May 06, 2003 6:20 am

I've just booked a flight itinerary for July with WestJet. I have booked to fly YEG-YYC on July 4/03 on WS33 to arrive at 7:43 am, so I can spend a day in Calgary Big grin then fly out to YVR later on the same day on an evening flight on WS562 at 8:30 pm. The return flight will be on July 20 on WS580 leaving at 2:05 pm nonstop to YEG.

Now here's the question. Is WestJet still doing the practice of using flight number in the 500s and 600s with 737-700 flights while the older 732s are flown on other flight numbers? If so, then I should have no problem getting on a 73G flight - which I have never done before and have always wanted to. Big grin

I think you'll like the new planes, especially if you are on a Westjet owned 737-700, nice leather seats.


Enjoy the spotting here, what day do you arrived?

Hey Mike.

Yah, WS is still using the 73Gs on 500/600 series flight numbers. 732s are used on flight numbers higher than zero, lower than 500.

Fallingeese,

I arrive in YYC on July 4.

MEL,

Thanks for the confirmation. I believe you said that you like the 73G.

It's been too long since I last talked to you via email! I still like to check out your URL once in awhile though. Big grin

Yah Mike... the 73Gs are great planes. If you sit forward of the engines, they sound much better than in the back... they sound great during taxi also.

If WS still has 2## numbered flights, they also use 700 planes as well.
Back when I flew back to YYC from YVR, I flew on WS205..
That time the plane I was on was only 2 months old so it stil had the fresh smell..  Smile

The 73G's are really comfortable although I did not get the owned ones with Leather seats I got one of the leased ones.
